Ummm, what does LOA mean? I'm not very knowledgeable, web-slang-wise, so I googled it. Google wanted to know if I meant LOA in Hawaiian or LOA in pregnancy ... also, it's apparently a voodoo spirit. Should we be worried?

(BVD, after all, means Bene Volens Diabolus ... Best Wishes from the Devil ... I should point out that this isn't my interpretation; it's from the noted expert Edward Eager, in his excellent tome, Knight's Castle. You can google it :-) )

Never do anything before coffee. That's a very important rule. Otherwise, you open the door for the Loas.

So that's why they call undershorts BVDs?

Yes. This is discovered, I believe, by Sir Hugo DeLacy, when the time-traveling young hero goes back to the days of Ivanhoe in his PJs. This was a very influential book on me in 5th grade.

I can push you over, if you like, by discussing a more recent literary choice among the new generation: Captain Underpants.

Who? Am I that divorced from current reality? OTOH, I do know that the latest kid food rage to sweep the country is spaghetti tacos. I look at that as another indicator of the failure of the Boomers. Why couldn't we have thought of that. Duh!
